I have a picture, pinned to my wall An image of you and of me and we’re laughing and loving it all But look at our life now, it’s tattered and torn We fuss and we fight and delight in the tears that we cry until dawn.
The opening lines of the 80s classic Hold Me Now by English pop group The Thompson Twins from their fourth studio album Into the Gap (1984).
Since you’ve gone I been lost without a trace I dream at night I can only see your face I look around but it’s you I can’t replace I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
Taken from The Police’s most famous song, Every Breath you Take, from their fifth (and final) studio album Synchronicity (1983). The song topped the UK and US charts (the latter for eight weeks), is regularly voted in best ever songs polls and is believed to generate about a third of Sting’s music publishing income.
